    Doubt /voiceless/

    Hello there!

    Is it correct to point out that 'b' should not be spoken like that? If not, could you please cast some light into it?

    Doubt /voiceless/

    Cheers,
    Tito

    No, it's not correct. The b in doubt is silent. "Voiceless" refers to the way the phoneme is articulated.
